Ugur Dalbeler, Chairman, IREPAS for Catalogue of Exhibition – SCULPTURES IN STEEL: “(…) Celebrating our silver anniversary this year, we are delighted to be collaborating with Villacero Foundation, the creators of this unique exhibition of steel transformed by art, and we are extremely proud to be involved in the exhibition’s very first appearance outside Latin America."

This magnificent Polish sculptor, Piotr Twardowski, who happens to be the youngest of them all, he just won the most important prize a sculptor can hope for, the Ube Biennial in Japan. Quite an achievement!”
Guillermo Mac Lean - Director of the Foundation Villacero

"The fourteen artists that invite you to share the experience of this exhibition all come from different countries, spread across four different continents – South America, Africa, Asia and Europe. It is obvious that each of the artist will be bringing along their own distinctive regional influences and experience to share with you (…)”

Guillermo Mac Lean - Director of the Foundation Villacero, for PRIME Magazine/February, March 2008: "(…) I know that among the group is the winner of Biennial Prize in Japan. Who is he? This magnificent Polish sculptor, Piotr Twardowski, who happens to be the youngest of them all, he just won the most important prize a sculptor can hope for, the Ube Biennial in Japan. Quite an achievement! He is a fabulous artist. I bet he will be great one among the contemporaries; there is no doubt in my mind."
